Spaces are wide with good foliage between neighbors. Surprised to have sewer and cable at a state park. Campground is about 3/4 miles from the Gulf of Mexico and their private beach. If you don't want to walk or bike, they have a free tram to take you. Very convenient if you are carrying coolers, chairs, etc. There are many paved bike/walking trails and some nature trails for hiking. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Natural beauty and serenity make this an excellent state park. Good facilities and amenities for a state park. Especially the laundry room. Easy in and out. Easy to navigate interior roads with good signage. Wifi terrible. Cable tv great. Site not quite big enough for our 40' toyhauler and tow vehicle. Clean site with great foliage and gravel pad. Excellent walking and biking park. Stay in sites 101-167 in new loop. Nice little ponds and seating areas around the park. Very enjoyable. Just too pricey. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is outstanding! We had a very private spot with cement pad and patio. Good water pressure and no power issues. Check in was very helpful and friendly. Nice bike trails and shuttle to beach. Watch the sunset over the gulf. We loved that there was 1 common fire area and we didn't have 6 campers around us burning trash wood and stinking up our coach... Small but nice pool, horse shoes, shuffleboard and lots of biking/walking trails. Free cable was good. No WIFI but we got 4-5 bars LTE on Verizon.

All the good reviews about this park are true. We were skeptical at first, but now we've seen it with our own eyes. We also like that it's far enough away from Destin that the peace and quiet is really appreciated.

The beach access might be troublesome to a few campers. We found it worth the effort to visit every day we stayed.

We will definitely be back. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is unusual. It is a state park on one hand, but bills itself as a "resort" .

Judged as a state park it's a solid 10.

Judged as a resort it's a 6 or 7.

The beach is typical of panhandle beaches.

It is beautiful.

If you are a beach person this stop is a near must.

Sites are well maintained. Safe, level. And more than adequate in size.

The price per night is large for a state park is high but worth it if you can afford it.

We were in a 37' fifth wheel and will come again. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campground! Popular campground and researvations are highly recommended! Our site was spacious and surrounded by bushes and trees. Nice and quiet! Beach access via tram or bicycle. Walking to the beach is also an option; although a bit of a hike. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Travel Trailer. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Travel Trailer.

We have been to this park in the past and overall maintenance has gone down from past stays. Shuffle Board courts closed.Posin ivy in a lot of places that kids and adults can easily get in it As concrete sites go bad they are scraping them off and replacing them with gravel. Still, a good place to stay. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Travel Trailer.

There are 2 sections to the campground: old and new. The old loop varies the most. Sites very private, and shaded to sites on top of each other or no shade. The newer section is laid out in an orderly pattern and overall has more privacy and more vegetation. Seems as though most prefer the newer section. The older section has some sites (especially the lower numbers like 1-20) that are part of the main entrance to the campground. These don't seem to be the most desirable.

All sites have full hookups. The pads are concrete or gravel. The gravel sites are new and are replacing the broken and heaved concrete on many sites.

The older section has a smaller bath building with 2 showers each side. It's doesn't seem to have AC. It's ok, but needs more place for items in shower. The newer section bath building is bigger, newer and has AC with several showers.

The camp store has some groceries, rentals for beach or lake gear and lots of info.

Highly recommend a convenient way to get your gear to the beach. (Wagon or cargo trailer). The campground is about a half mile from the beach. You can take the tram and all your gear, ride a bike, or walk.

Your parking permit will include a code for entry to the park after hours.

Be prepared for random thundershowers. We know better but left our awning out on a day no rain was forecast. Enjoyed full sun in Destin only to return to find Topsail had a torrential downpour with wind while we were gone. Took part of our awning out of its slot. Another camper's awning was ripped half way off.

Laundry is $1.50 each wash and dry. Works well, no change machine

Campsite photos available online, reserve in advance for best campsite selection.

Travel on Hwy 98 is SLOW, but Walmart and Publix nearby.

Nice bike trail along 30A and paved trail to Campbell Lake in park. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Travel Trailer.

My family and I stayed at Topsail for 7 days. I don't think you can beat this price per night for a very nice campground that has access to absolutely beautiful beaches. We had a concrete pad back-in site (36) with full hookups and beautiful trees and foliage around us. The pool was about a minute away and very clean. This is a Florida State park that is run in a large part by camper volunteers from all over the states. My wife and I found that out by talking to a volunteer in the camp store from Tennessee who was very nice and gave us lots of tips on where to go and what to see. The beach was about a half mile from our camp site that we chose to ride to on our bikes. The path is paved and mostly level (some small hills). There is also a shuttle (a pickup pulling several open air cars) that will take you from a pickup point in the campground to a drop-off point near a boardwalk path to the beach. I think it ran every 20 minutes or so. They allow you to bring beach items with you (umbrellas, etc) and will help you load them onto and off of the shuttle. The campground is just off of 30A and is quiet, well maintained, and clean. While the interior roads are somewhat narrow inside the various camping "loops", they were easily navigated by my 36' travel trailer. There were no fire rings at our site or any around us that we saw. Of note, I had a trailer related problem that I needed assistance with and found 4 different RV repair companies that provided onsite service that were listed in the campground map ads provided by Topsail. Very nice and convenient! We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Travel Trailer.

Destin is 12 miles from Topsail and worth a visit to the Harbor Walk. They had a Mardis Gras parade on Tuesdays and fireworks on Thursday not to mention lots of restaurants, bars and shops. Fun place. Also in Destin is the Back Porch restaurant that had great food and right on the beach.

Checked in June 18th for a 12 day stay! We like the large sites, some are closer together than others but nice. Many are gravel and some concrete. Some pull they sites too! Pool is closed due to structural damage, haven't seen anyone working on it yet! Free Tram service to the beach every 30 minutes 9am to 7 pm daily. Also to Campbell Lake 3 times a day. Bathrooms older but clean. Large separate tent area. Full hookups on all sites, cable tv too. Shaded sites and full sun sites. We reserved almost a year in advance due to such high demand. Park is full all the time. Beach is great to spend time at and is the biggest attraction here. They have kayak, canoe, and paddle board rentals, shuffle board courts too. Small dock on a pond for fishing and Campbell lake for canoe and kayak time. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

This was our second visit. This RV park remains as one of the best we have ever stayed in. This time we had site 122 which is a spacious pull through. Staff are amazing, the grounds are spotless, and the nearby Santa Rosa beach is world class. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Travel Trailer.

This continues to be one of our favorite parks. It has been several years since we have camped here. We did notice a difference in the park, interior roads are not in the best shape with pot holes. Some sites have cracked concrete, and are being replaced with gravel. Laundry had several machines down, making it a wait to do your laundry. Cabins are looking their age with mold and missing shingles. Landscaping is nice allowing privacy between your neighbor's. Tram runs to the beach. Weather was rainy the 4 days we were here. Very nice concert on Thursday evenings. Enjoyed a walk with the Ranger and learned about controlled burns. We will return. There is cable at each site but ours did not work. We reported it as we left. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.
